Syria: Barack Obama hands
the world to Vladimir Putin

Telegraph [UK], by Janet Daley

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 9/10/2013 7:34:54 AM

When I wrote in my last but one column that the only winner in the shambles that the West was making over its response to Syria would be Vladimir Putin, I had no idea how prescient that snide comment would turn out to be. So incompetent has the Obama White House been in its on-again, off-again action against the criminal despot Assad, and so eager is Barack Obama himself to find an exit from his own impasse, that Russia is being absurdly elevated to world saviour in a crisis which it has helped to create. Thanks to an ironic aside

Read through a safety screen--the torrent of well-deserved vitriol hurled at the White House might splash on you.

"...fundamentally changing America..."

Everything is going according to Obamas sick far left plan, this president is taking America down even faster than he thought was possible.

This is BO´s master plan all along!

Quote BO to Putin: "I will have more flexibility after the election"

I am outraged. How come OUR media refuses to see this?

I guess in the end this is all going to be good for employment. All of the arms and armament manufacturing facilities, ship building and airplane factories, etc. are going to have to gear up and start producing to get us back up to a level where we can start defending ourselves again. The Leftists has given away the store --and not just 0bama, and the spineless RINOs has sat with their thumbs in their mouths, hiding under their beds in the fetal position and watched it happen.

It will take another combination of Reagan and Thatcher to pull us out of this mess.

There is no limit to the countries as well as fringe groups who now believe America is a weak sister and disfunctional, and totally incapable of fending off a serious attack or take over.

It will happen, and it won´t just be al quaeda looking to bring us down this time.

The United States has acted as a "weak sister" since August 1945, willing to involve itself almost anywhere on the globe, unwilling to win victory...Truman, Ike, JFK, LBJ, Nixon...Bush41, Clinton, Bush43 and BHO. What we have is a quagmire, never leave military strategy...and we can no longer afford it by any measure of cost. The world has changed, US foreign and military policies have not responded well.

Well deserved vitriol, OP? I´ll give you well deserved vitriol.

To all our Euroweenie "allies" whose response to American leadership that (I can´t believe they still need reminding) singlehandedly saved Europe from a thousand year Reich was a continuous feast of hand wringing, second-guessing, backbiting, betrayal, and effete commentary, and who were beside themselves at the prospect of Citizen Of The World Obama replacing that (sniff) cowboy Bush: choke on it.

To all the libertarians and "conservatives" and single-issue Republicans who couldn´t possibly compromise their superior high ideals by voting for Romney, let alone make any attempt to persuade anyone else to: choke on it.

To the rest of the free world who could do nothing but find fault with the way America led, I hope you like your life now that the eagle standing guard outside your door has been replaced by the Russian bear that just climbed into your bed.

And we still have 3 1/2 more years of this crap to look forward to. Thanks for nothing.

Yup. STILL angry.

We won the cold war thanks to Ronald Reagan. Now we´re into it again on a smaller scale, but losing it dramatically because our panty-waist ´president´ clutching his putter is being outmaneuvered by the KGB vet, Vladimir.

Lordy, lordy, when an American president needs the help of a conniving Russian like Putin . . . we should all be embarrassed.

All the rest of the posters have said it well. Just one point missing: Zippy himself has now told us that if one were to ask Michelle about Syria and taking any action, she´d say, "No." Not a surprise, just confirmation of the fact that this hideous woman and the commie shadow president, Valerie Jarrett– raised in Iran as a muslim– have this weak, cowardly, noxious, liar in their full control. Second point: His statement also let the world know that he consults the bow-legged amazon. Although I´m not surprised, I´m astonished that even this male pretender would announce it. We´ll probably find out next that the red phone to Putin is on her side of the bed.

C´mon, don´t you secretly admire Putin and envy the Russian their dictator sans black and gay power problems tearing at our society? just a smidge of grudging admiration?

Was it all a set-up to be played on the world stage? Obama the white socialist in blackface. Don´t yell! How many black friends does obama have? How many culturally black? How many liberals, socialists and one avowed communist--until the pop media DID do its job and gently hound Van out?

But, grudging admiration or not, wouldn´t trade our soon to be deposed socialist front man for the accomplish dictator and democracy killer Putin. He doesn´t mind killing his opponents.

Putin does what he does best and obama gives the inevitable speech. (Groan) I haven´t listened to any since the first one of the 2008 campaign. Having missed his prancing and dissembling, continual campaign harangue, I think I´ll pass another of the great I won´s self praise and propaganda.

"My own family members...

Could anyone 12 years ago on September 11 , 2001 have imagined that the POTUS
would be planning on using US military might to arm and support Al Queda ?

#15, I have no idea why you are so angry over my support for Janet Daley´s opinion of the Obama White House. Let´s start with the short bio of the author:

Janet Daley was born in America where she began her political life on the Left as an undergraduate at Berkeley. She moved to Britain (and to the Right) in 1965 where she spent nearly twenty years in academic life before becoming a political commentator: all factors that inform her writing on British and American policy and politicians.

And what I heartily agree with is her statement about the Obama White House:

So incompetent has the Obama White House been in its on-again, off-again action against the criminal despot Assad, and so eager is Barack Obama himself to find an exit from his own impasse, that Russia is being absurdly elevated to world saviour in a crisis which it has helped to create.

One of Europe´s most powerful media tycoons has accused Google of seeking to create a digital ´superstate´ outside the control of national regulators and privacy laws. Mathias Döpfner, head of the giant German multi-media company Axel Springer, says Wir haben Angst vor Google: "We are afraid of Google." [Snip] Writing an open letter to Eric Schmidt, chairman of Google, in the German daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Döpfner said: "Google not only knows where we are going in our cars, but also what we do while we’re driving.

One of US president Barack Obama´s leading campaign strategists has been recruited by Labour to play a key role in Ed Miliband´s bid for Downing Street in next year´s general election. David Axelrod, who is credited with masterminding Mr Obama´s presidential victories in 2008 and 2012, will join Labour´s general election campaign team as a senior strategic adviser, the party announced. His appointment was been hailed by Labour as a major coup, and ´´seriously bad news for the Conservatives´´, at a time when Mr Miliband has been under fire from sections of his own party for his campaign tactics.

Deep in the flat and featureless landscape of eastern Ukraine, it is all too ­possible that the outline of World War III is taking shape. Whipped up by the Kremlin ­propaganda machine and led by Russian ­military intelligence, armed men are erecting road blocks, storming police stations and ripping down the country’s flag. They are demolishing not just their own country — bankrupt, ill-run and beleaguered — but also the post-war order that has kept most of Europe and us, here in Britain, safe and free for decades. Vladimir Putin is striking at the heart of the West.

The Internal Revenue Service is considering a bold move to label perks like free lunch given to workers by companies as taxable. The agency wonders if freebies like haircuts and gym memberships are a way to compensate the highly skilled rather than just a way to jumpstart productivity. After all, argue proponents of such a tax, workers at Silicon Valley firms like Google and Facebook receive free meals from famously fancy in-house eateries every day. Some companies even go a step further by offering freebies like haircuts, car services, and child care. Typical workaday folks can expect to pay for all

According to figures compiled by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, Moscow spent 4.1 percent of its GDP on defence in 2013, an increase of 0.6 percent over the past 10 years. By contrast, the United States spent 3.8 percent of GDP on defence and Britain spent just 2.3 percent. The only neighbouring country that spends more is Azerbaijan, with 4.7 percent. Defence spending in Ukraine has also rocketed by 16 percent in the space of a year following the crisis in Crimea and continued tensions with Russia over the eastern provinces of the country.

Even by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change´s own lamentable standards, its new report--by Working Group III of the Fifth Assessment Report--makes no sense whatsoever. [Snip] Before the report´s formal release, US officials--who had seen an earlier draft--wrote to the United Nations demanding it be amended. "The discussion of the economic costs of mitigation is too narrow and does not incorporate co-benefits of action." Loosely translated this means: "If we admit how much we´re spending to such little purpose, the taxpaying public is going to kill us." So the report was duly amended to suggest that the benefits of wind turbines, solar panels,

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to
